WatersEdge Lily of Bull Creek turned eight years old today! If you are lucky, you might see the cake disappearing!
Quincy is now back running the spaniel flushing tests. Yesterday he did a nice run in senior and qualified. Two flushes, two sits, two retrieves all in two minutes! And now has two senior passes. Unfortunately Winnie , his sister, has come into heat and so could not run. This would have been her master title run.
We spent the weekend at the Virginia Upland Classic Pheasant Hunt at the 1,000 acres of Liberty Corner Farm in Albemarle County Virginia. We took our new camper and were parked right at the clubhouse. The picture is the field used for the first open flushing run. Winnie did really well and went on to come 5th out of 24 in the open flushing competition. Working with her Toller friend Boone, they came 5th out of 10 in the doubles flushing.
Quincy earned his Master Hunter Title today at the Rappahannock River Retriever Club hunt test at Shady Grove Preserve in Remington VA. The judges were Dan & Peggy Ramsey. There was ice on the flooded timber this morning!
